The new classic.
Heads up! Additional promotions do not apply to this item.
This French oven does everything your classic Staub cocotte does, with a brand-new look. Available in grey, grenadine, matte black, or white, the Essential French Oven has sloping sides similar to a skillet, to help you scrape all the nooks and crannies while you stir a risotto or a pot of grits. The domed lid has the self-basting technology that Staub is known for—its specially-designed inner spikes evenly distribute condensation for the most tender of braises. Along with its updated design, the Essential French Oven has all the details and craftsmanship that makes Staub one of the most trusted names in cookware: superior heat distribution, oven safe up to 500° F, easy-to-clean enamel finish, and the good looks to take it from stovetop to tabletop.

Meet the Maker
It's hard to look at the French company's picturesque cast iron and ceramic wares and not daydream about the *magnifique* things you'll make in them. Staub specializes in enameled cast iron cookware made in Alsace, which makes for superior browning and heat retention (perfect for those hours-long braises). The pieces work hard, but they’re pretty enough to go straight from stovetop/oven to the table. They take on a variety of shapes and colors, but we're partial to the cocottes with a deep blue hue and brass knobs exclusive to our Shop.View Full Profile
